According to Zacks, on November 7, PetMed Express, Inc. (NASDAQ: PETS) announced that the company would begin paying quarterly dividends. This information was provided in the announcement. In the announcement, this information was shared with the public. Shareholders who were “recorded” as stock owners as of the previous Friday, November 18, will be eligible to receive a dividend payment on Wednesday, November 30 of $0.30 per share, to be distributed to those shareholders on Wednesday, November 30. This dividend payment will be distributed to shareholders on Wednesday, November 30. The recipients of this payment will be those shareholders who have met the necessary criteria to be eligible to receive dividends. A dividend yield of 6.01% on investment is currently available, which translates to a dividend payout of $1.20 per share per year. On Thursday, November 17, the results of the vote that will decide whether or not to distribute this dividend will be made public. These results will determine whether or not this dividend is distributed.
PetMed Express has increased the total amount of money it distributes to shareholders in the form of dividends at an average annual rate of 4.3% for the past three years. This increase was achieved by increasing the total amount of money the company earns. Additionally, over the last twelve years, PetMed Express has increased the total amount of money it pays out annually to its shareholders in the form of dividends. However, PetMed Express has a payout ratio of 133.3%, indicating that the company relies on its balance sheet to cover its dividend payments because it cannot cover them from earnings alone. This situation is because the company is in a position where it cannot cover its dividend payments with earnings alone. This circumstance has occurred because PetMed Express is in a position to cover the cost of its dividend payments using its balance. This problem has arisen as a direct result of PetMed Express not currently being able to cover its dividend using only the profits it has generated.
Given that stock analysts are forecasting that the company will earn $0.98 per share next year, PetMed Express may not be able to meet its obligation to pay an annual dividend of $1.20, since this is the amount that the company is required to pay. Also, the future payout ratio for the company is 122.4%, which means that there is a possibility that the company may not be able to cover the dividend payment. As a result, the company’s dividend payment may be in jeopardy.
